Having had a keen interest in science since the age of seven, I have had the benefit of a wide variety of studies. I have worked and contracted for very small companies through to the very large in RF and audio electronics engineering, systems analysis, dimensional analysis, technical writing, graphic design, university lecturing in IT, business consulting, medical research, network engineering, webmastering and several other occupations.
Throughout ALL these subjects and activities, the singular aspect that has always come to the forefront of my attention is that of ENERGY.
Over the decades, I have felt a need to define this quantity in a way that "unifies" the observations I have made of it throughout all the above-mentioned disciplines:
Energy represents the capacity for CHANGE.
The different forms of energy effect changes in their respective dimensions.
Thus, thermal energy causes changes in temperature, electrical energy causes a change in current or voltage, mechanical energy causes change of location or velocity, chemical energy causes changes in substance and so on.
Whether we look outwards to the gargantuan objects in this vast universe, around us to the everyday considerations of life or inwards to the smallest conceivable sub-atomic particles, energy is always there as a parameter deserving contemplation.
But of ALL forms of energy, there is ONE form that has taken precedence in the minds of the vastly greater majority of humankind - and that form is MONEY - the peoples standard medium of energy exchange.
In the interests of "progress" and continued "economic growth", our collective attention has been shifted away from the purely energetic to the purely financial and our world, as well as our lives, are being impacted in ways that were unimaginable just a few short decades ago.
Regardless of the type of energy however, the way in which the energy is deployed is of paramount importance in determination of the results obtained.
Whenever energy is directed toward attaining some outcome, the action carried out is subject to the Law of Action and Reaction thus, the nature of this inevitable reaction depends on the nature of the action.
In many simple cases, the reaction simply opposes the action and energy is wasted in this opposition. This wastage of energy is most often termed a "loss".
By deploying the available energy in a different way, the same outcome can be attained with greater energy transfer efficiency. This can mean the attainment of some result using less energy or a better result using the same amount of energy.
Throughout all of this, the focus is on the approach to the subject or object under consideration.
"In the end, it is always found that the answer was back in the approach."
If a process involves a large quantity of energy, then sufficient consideration given to determining the best approach can result in great savings - and this, in the authors humble opinion, is a real example of "energy amplification", as a small amount of mental energy can yield a large gain in physical energy.
Quantum Energy Dynamics or QED for short, is the study of the dynamics of energy exchanges and the approaches to them with the objective of discovering the quantum (minimum amount) of energy required for their attainment.
To begin, we will examine the energy dynamics of three main areas of physics:
With a deeper understanding of the above and the methods learned, the energy dynamics of other dimensions will be investigated and finally, it is shown that QED principles also apply in the area of economics and business.
